I've seen lines like op.execute("CREATE LANGUAGE plpgsql") in other scripts in my system so thought I could do similar with the following.

op.execute("SHOW TABLES LIKE 'table_name'")

How can I check the result from this and then do stuff based on existence or not?

I tried result = op.fetchone() but this is incorrect.
  AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'fetchone'

and
  if not op.execute("SHOW TABLES LIKE 'agents'"):
